This isn't about right and wrong. I don't think you would find too many people outside of Oakland that would argue that suspending Draymond Green for a Finals game would be a grave injustice after he has somehow become the poster boy for artful sac taps. He's basically been begging for the fateful flagrant that will cement his place on the bench for the entirety of a night. If this play - in and of itself - wasn't enough to punish him then the cumulation of this play and every karate kick he has sent flying at the defenseless heads, shoulders, knees, and nuts of his defenders certainly is.
Like I said though, this isn't about right versus wrong. The NBA has set the precedent. Keeping the talent on the floor during the biggest games of the season is more important than maintaining the integrity of the game. In that sense I am not surprised that they've failed to take action after yet another one of Draymond's limbs has made contact with yet another man's genitals. However, in the sense that plastering him to the bench could provide the NBA Finals a much needed shot of drama I think they are missing a golden opportunity.
You see, it was tough for Adam Silver to justify putting a struggling team at greater odds. That's why he slapped Draymond with a frivolous fine for trying to kick a 50 yard field goal with Steven Adam's cradle of unborn children. It isn't so tough now that the Golden State Warriors are on the cusp of putting a premature end to one of the most anti-climactic postseason's in NBA history. Sitting one of brightest stars - who absolutely deserves to be sat - was probably the only thing that could have provided the Cavaliers a realistic opportunity to extend the series on the road in Game 5. It definitely wouldn't have made the product on the court any better, but it probably would have made it more watchable because the basketball we have seen thus far has miserably failed to live up to it's potential as appointment television. Suspending Draymond could have been addition by subtraction if it was even partly responsible for giving us even one more minute of competitive basketball to view. Fuck right vs. wrong, letting a player continue to terrorize testicles without being penalized playing time was a triumph of stupidity over smarts.
